I occasionally play this game with all levels as a way of reviewing the numbers in Spanish. Kids seem to really like it and there is always 100% participation/engagement and lots of enthusiasm. WARNING: Class gets very loud!

Basically the kids are divided into groups of 4. 2 people will compete head to head to say the number in Spanish, 1 person deals the cards, and the 4th person acts as the judge (who said the number 1st, correctly?).

- Review numbers on the overhead projector with the class.
- Divide students into groups of 4.
- 2 players will compete head to head
- 1 student is the dealer
- 1 student is the judge (settles any disputes as to who said the card 1st and correctly).

- If there is an uneven number, you may need 1 or 2 groups of the 3.
- 1 person will play twice each round so that each player ends up with 4 total scores before the playoff round.
- Dealer is also the judge.

- Pass out playing cards and Score Card to each group.
- I collected playing cards from students years ago. I offered to give extra credit for students that donated a deck of playing cards.
- I have removed all the face cards and jokers.

- Students are competing to say who can say the number shown by the dealer correctly.
- Set your timer for between 30 and 60 seconds (depending on how much time is left in class)
- In round 1, students are working on numbers 1-10 (Ace = 1)
- After the 1st two kids compete, record the number of cards they won on the score card.
- Now switch roles. The dealer and judge are now competing and the 1st two competitors become the dealer and judge.

- In round 2, players are now working on numbers between 11-20.
- I tell them to add 10 to the number they see on the card.
- I also tell them that they need to compete against a different person in their group.

- In round 3, players are working on numbers between 10-100.
- I tell them to multiply by 10.
- They are now competing against the only person in the group they haven’t competed against.

- Round 4 is the playoff round.
- Add up scores from rounds 1, 2, and 3 to get a sub total. This determines who is in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th so far.
- The 1st and 2nd place people will face each other, the 3rd and 4th place people will face each other.
- Kids are now multiplying by 100.
- Add round 4 score to sub total.

- Other
- Top 3 in each group earn extra credit.
- I give 1st place finisher the most points, 3rd place the least points.

- In case of tie, I have them Ro-Sham-Bo.
- When I have classes with heritage speakers, I will group them together.

- Top 3 in each group earn extra credit.
